Marvel’s The Punisher Official Trailer

It’s finally here! Netflix has released the official trailer for Marvel’s The Punisher and it looks seriously kick ass. Just a couple days ago we got a short promotional video featuring Frank Castle making some soldiers pay for going after him. If you missed that then just click here to check it out. However, it’s not necessary to watch it before you check out the official trailer that we have posted below for your viewing pleasure. The trailer is definitely brutal in true Punisher fashion not to mention that it is set to the hard hitting sound of Metallica’s song “One“. All in all I’d have to say that this might be one of the most intense and exciting trailers for a Marvel Netflix original series.

Toys”R”Us files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

The first thing I have to say is don’t panic Nerd Nation. When I first read the news about Toys”R”Us filing for bankruptcy, I about lost my sh*t. Ever since I was a kid I have always loved going into Toys”R”Us stores and now having kids I love it even more. I’ve seen a lot of sights posting that Toys”R”Us stores will be closing their doors, but that is NOT true. At least not yet anyways. Had they filed chapter 7 bankruptcy then we would definitely be kissing their stores goodbye right now. Thankfully the toy store giant has filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy and the hope is that they will come out of this with a lot less debt, and once again be competitive in the ever changing retail market.

Sonic Forces Story Trailer

Sonic The Hedgehog is back with an awesome new adventure for consoles and PC. In Sonic Forces he and his friends must save the world from Eggman or Robotnic (as we in the states know him) and his army of evil robots. To be honest I am actually really glad to see Sega putting out a good looking Sonic game that looks exciting and somewhat reminiscent of the games for the original Genesis. Based on this trailer the story seems to be fairly compelling and the game play looks to be pretty fast paced as well as diverse. Not only does it look like a classic Sonic game, but it also has some visual elements of the Ratchet and Clank games. This might be the first Sonic game that I actually purchase in years. 

Brutal Punisher Promo Video

One of the best things to come out of the many Marvel series on Netflix was of course The Punisher played by Jon Bernthal. He debuted in season 2 of DareDevil and is now getting his own stand alone series set to premier sometime later this year. We were already treated with a pretty intense teaser that was released back in August and if you missed that then just click here to check it out. Well today Marvel released a short promotional video for the new Punisher series and it already looks pretty brutal. People should know by now that you don’t mess with Frank Castle or you’re gonna end up on the wrong side of an ass whoopin….or worse. 

Amazing “Batman: The Animated Series” Collectible Villain Set

This week one of the most iconic animated series from the 90s turned 25 years old. For those of you that grew up in the 90s you probably loved or at least were familiar with Batman: The Animated Series. For many kids that grew up watching this show Kevin Conroy (Batman) and Mark Hamil (Joker) defined Batman and the Joker for their entire generation. There were so many great story lines, iconic animation, and memorable villains that came out of that series. Well in honor of the show’s 25th anniversary DC Collectibles is releasing the Batman: The Animated Series GCPD Rogues Gallery action figure set. One look at this set and it’s obvious that any fan of the animated series or Batman in general will want to add this to their collection.

Spider-Man Visits Children in Hurricane Shelter

Hurricane Harvey has been one of, if not the most destructive and deadly storms in the history of the United States. However, in the midst of all the destruction and devastation caused by Harvey it has some how managed to bring out the best in people. America has rallied together to help the families that have been devastated by the storm and believe it or not, our favorite web head has managed to find his way down to Houston to help lift spirits. That’s right Spider-Man himself visited the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston which has received more than 9,000 evacuees. This is an awesome example of someone doing what they can to help out people in desperate need right now. 

D.C. Animation Batman: Gotham by Gaslight Sneak Peek

One of the best things about D.C. Comics is their awesome animated movies. The latest one to be released is titled Batman: Gotham by Gaslight. It is basically a “what if” story about Batman facing off against Jack the Ripper back in the 1800s. Personally I have only heard of this comic but never actually read it myself. However, this animation looks pretty awesome and I really like the concept of this, especially when you consider how great of a detective Batman is. Unfortunately I feel like most if not all of the movie adaptations and even some of the animated ones really miss the mark when it comes to portraying Batman as the detective he truly is. 

Overwatch Developer Update: Hero Balancing

Blizzard released a developer update yesterday and announced that they will be making some major changes to one of the game’s most popular characters. When putting a team together in Overwatch, one of the most crucial components is of course the healer. No healer is more popular among the Overwatch community than Mercy. If you are an avid Mercy player than you probably love her just the way she is, but if you’ve ever been a part of a team wipe just to have her resurrect the entire enemy team, then you might feel a little differently about her… at the time at least. Well it seems that Blizzard has taken it upon themselves to make some pretty major changes to Mercy and you may love or hate their decision.
